Opeth - In Cauda Venenum

Oh Mikael, why are you a shitty songwriter? This is the most cohesive album of their prog period, and has some great music on it. Mikael just sucks as a songwriter, bouncing from idea to idea with no transition whatsoever. That isn't 'prog', it's lazy. And it still amazes me that once he started focusing on being a better singer, his melody lines have gotten so much less interesting. Oh well, Soen is clearly the better Opeth these days.

Yes, the "transitions" in prog-era Opeth sound more like lousy cut and paste jobs than seamless progressive movements, like Gabriel-era Genesis.
